While washing clothes after Holi Festivity, we generally think how to remove color stains from clothes. We ignore the thought of cleaning the Washing Machine which includes Tub, Dryer, Rotor, and Body. Some of us would not even have knowledge about how to clean it.
When we put our stained clothes in the Machine, the detergent removes stains from the clothes. While doing so we forget about the colour which is left on the body. Post Holi-Laundry, you witness those unwanted color stains stuck around the washing machine: in the tub, in the dryer, on the door etc.
The easiest way to clean up the stains inside the machine is, after washing all the clothes fill up hot water in the tub; keep it hot and not luke warm!
Now, add a full cup of vinegar to it and give the machine a grin for about 2 minutes.

You can also use Bleach as a replacement of Vinegar. Drain the stained water through the pipe. You will notice that the color stains are no more visible.
For the stains on the doors and body of the washing machine, take hot water in a bowl and add bleach. Now, soak a sponge in the solution and give a gentle scrub to the stains. Leave it for an hour.
